business is because of the charm and the fact that i love this city. of it -- these big box stores coming in is going to in the long run markell's. i am in support of the legislation. thank you. >> i would like to remind anyone to turn off mobile devices that may sound off during the procedures. >> thank you. i also work for jeffrey's natural pet foods. i moved in 2007 and am happy to have a reason to stay. i was able to walk in to my local pet food store looking for exactly what it is i need. what they carry and other special items i may need them to order. other things i might want them to consider stocking. i was able to find work within the next few weeks at the store and i have been able to earn a living wage since then. i appreciate that opportunity. the small pet stores are receptive to their clients. we know dogs by name and we know clients by name, we know favorite foods, we know inclinations, we know allergies, we know so much about the people who we serve and we're able to do the things they need to serve their animals better and to cover all their needs. even as far as things

of big box and formula retail on neighborhood corridors, to look at how we can help support more economic impact studies and impacts on small businesses and to have living wage jobs and other issues factored in and looked at, as well, but i know those are bigger issues but as the supervisor of the richmond, i'm doing my best to look at step by step ways to help the small business climate and the vibrant community that we have. i'm willing to talk more with you about other issues as they come up, as well. commissioner moore: i'm prepared to support you but for us here in the commission, the questions are more urgent. just a few weeks ago, few months ago, had a cvs pharmacy which we done even know how to answer and when it comes to neighborhoods telling us that there are large amounts of vacancies in their area, we were hard pressed not to see that this might be one way to go although it's not the only way because i think anticipatory thinking and kind of like creating protections and barriers way ahead of time is really the answer so i would ask you as quickly as possible to help us on the

is extremely small. and thrls is a really big demand for larger, new homes in san francisco. i've talked to a lot of realtors and of course it's not going to be cheap but there are people who afford to pay for this and they would rather live in san francisco than somewhere on the peninsula or outside san francisco and marin but there isn't a big stock of these homes and buying an older home is a lot more expensive proposition because you buy the older home and have to pay a lot for that and put a lot of money into upgrading a 1925 openly which oftentimes has not been, you know, brought up to date so they're looking for this type of product. and i would agree with staff we need some design changes. this is really knowy valley and know it's on the border with diamond heights but clearly is with nowie valley and it was changed a few years ago and gold mine comes down in a culdesac from diamond heights. but should reflect the style in nowie valley and looked at the stuff that's been built more recently and the ones built in the 1990's wasn't too bad but the single family home built in 2011,

into the alley in the play yard. we have the expected big earthquake that will be happening soon. there is no unusual condition that says this will stand and hold the equipment has not hold the residents in the surrounding area. the valley itself is traffic from the post office. the people taking shortcuts through this valley. [chime] may i have a few extra minutes? president olague: everyone is allowed three minutes to speak. i did have a couple other speaker cards. >> i live approximately 300 feet from the proposed site. i was at both meetings. i think one problem here is the height problem. at&t says they are putting on top of the building, they're putting on top of the elevator appear in how many more feet? the building is four stories. you have a high dakota and all the sudden, who changed it? at&t says that planning is fine. it is the right height. how could that be? it blocks of the entire golden gate bridge. but that is only my view. and all of my other neighbors from the roof, that is the only access i have to the outside. never mind that we have 420 signatures of regist

the warehouse, i remember everyone talking about, we will never need a place that big. it is too much and we will never need it. 10 years later, we have 100% outgrown it. it doesn't allow us to bring in the kinds of products that our customers want us to bring in. there have been a lot of changes in the industry the last few years like requirements in paper and packaging to be more environmentally friendly and that kind of thing. in order to make that happen, we need more room. they come from the city, [reading names] all of these restaurants, not one of them are a chain. they're all independent restaurants. we are able to make them competitive. because customers drive to our facility, we can offer a discount on products and reverses a conventional distributors. we find ourselves -- and this is sort of the emerald city, so to speak. as andrew mentioned, we have 115 employees. 85 of them are union. with our proposed expansion, we will be adding 25 employees to handle the additional business. the majority of our employees live within 5 miles of where we operate. we have very low turnover. long

to focus on is access to these buildings so we don't get a big dislocation and undercut the economic reason for why we want to do this. going forward we have a lot of coordination and with those kinds of things and how to get the word out and the small businesses and how to put your best foot forward. and i will say due to some of the stacking of what needs to be done, that isn't really fully formed yet. but we have a willing partner in the event authority and we really take to heart, for example, the economic impact study done before the america's cup came with this really great big number on it. you have to do something to make that happen. i think we really see this not just as the america's cup coming but how to ramp up for that and also to create a legacy for the businesses to put their best foot forward and do the work for these teams and visitors and going forward on a more permanent basis. that is the focus we're taking and will want to build that out and put the full picture in front of people and looking at the e.i.r. approval and saying is this something we, the city, wants to mo

, because there is a shortage of nursing programs and a big demand. perhaps, i hope that institutions like samuel merritt and others consider things like dental hygiene, which we also have a shortage of and not enough programs. that is a conversation for another day, but it is definitely a need, and there is a demand for the services of many of the training that this institution provides. so that is very important and is something that has job opportunities at the end of it. president olague: closing the hearing. >> this places us on item 10, and informational item on formula retail. >> good afternoon. i am part of the department staff. this is an informational presentation you requested on the current status of formula retail. a full report was included in your packet. i will make every presentation. this is the type of retail sales activity or establishment which, along with 11 or more locations in the united states, maintains two or more the following features. a standardized a ray of merchandise, a standardized assad, a standardized de corps, and color scheme, uniform apparel, standard

: with such a big difference with the common ground, it is almost impossible for me to meaningfully respond to this challenge. we not have any rules facing -- with the windows facing the property. you have come to a personal agreement, and a mutual understanding of these issues that jointly affect you. i see that you are going to do the design, but i am not certain how you would feel if your neighbor was wanting to design your house. this was affected by all the rules in the code, but is almost impossible not to empathize with you. i like your house. and he continuously said that the feet are not use when you look at other cities. 25 feet is allowed to be narrowed with the house. it is almost impossible to continue to force the joining neighbor to do more and more. on the front they have reasonably responded, and we are not the architectural design board. we are looking at the general performance and the rules. i think the building is a little bit lethargic, and we have some of the possibilities of notching and shaping. and not have any tools here, or scales away. i cannot release support t

the bar it sound fantastic, outside the bar, you really can't hear it. so, you know, big ups on that. yeah, that's basically -- i think i would like the -- i would like the restrictions to be lifted and for her to continue to provide entertainment until 2:00 a.m. and i also remember seeing chris isaac. >> a long time ago. >> those are great shows. president olague: thank you. is there additional public comment? >> good evening, commissioners. my name is christophe moscolonik. i'm coming to you to show my support for ociento having an entertainment license that runs until 2:00 a.m. i'm a deejay and a neighbor. i'm also here on my anniversary to show support. the venue itself, i know how much she invested in the sound system, i also know how much she invested in the soundproofing, specifically to meet the conditioning for the noise ordinance on the street within 30 feet or something along those lines. i also know the volume of the sound will be identical to whether it's a live deejay or an ipod plugged in or a deejay streaming from the studio. that was my idea. there are no conditions for am

by the work of the transition youth task force which told us that big projects don't really work for this population. so we really did intend to support projects that were smaller and more suitable for young adults. the proposal that's been put forth today to reduce the number of units would make this expensive project more expensive in a number of ways. and without boring you too much, i'll just explain a couple of aspects of that. first of all, they've already secured about $4 million in funding from the state. for this project. which is great. they're a very competitive program that's now basically going away. so this was an opportunity of a lifetime for them. they brought the money in. that funding will be reduced if they reduce units. we'll lose about $1s.5 million of that. we may lose it all, because there may be a threshold under their new regulation that is we can't meet. we will also lose what you've heard discussion of, the tax credit equity program, the low-income tax credit. we will get less money from that program if the number of units is reduced, and we will have t

. >> it is big. >> commissioners, this places us on item 11a. 11b, 11c, all for 3020 laguna sereet. >> commissioners, this project is located in an rh-2 zoning district. the project proposes to demolish the existing two-story single family residence and construct a four-story building. i should note the amount of parking will be limited to one parking space. currently it is 0. no additional request for discretionary review has been filed by members of the public. at this time, and additional drilling unit provides a net gain of three bedrooms and -- an additional swelling unit provides a net gain of three bedrooms. staff recommends we do not take discretionary review and approve the demolition. there are various is being requested for this project. at this time, i will be available to answer any questions. thank you. chair miguel: thank you. project sponsored? -- project sponsor? >> good afternoon. i am the architect on the project. i represent my clients who are a young couple with two young children. the existing building is essentially a 1-bedroom and one- bath with one-car gara

proposed also. i think those are all a big improvement. the other thing and this is certainly not discussion for today, but there are the parking lots which will remain as they are. this is not something for the future to look at. i think we could some day hopefully have some better usage. you'll have better parking but in an elevated structure that might make available those other areas for development. it is something to keep in mind as we move forward or expansion of target or other retailers of that type into those areas. there is a lot of opportunity there. it would look better from the street and from the air when you look at that. from the people who came from ewing court, most of you know it was long before at&t, at candlestick, or seale stadium. that was a cul-de-sac. it is an interesting history. thank you. i think this will be a great proposal and we will work with staff and i am in favor of it. >> i wanted to clarify what the commissioner said about design issues. to give some clear direction. you are supportive of changes at the street level, opening up more pedes

too much space. so they have become coffeeshops for half of them. there has been a big change. everything changes and maybe this is the time for this code to change. >> the neighborhood commercial controls developed in the late '80s, the impetus for that was branch banks at the time. the code already in the neighborhood commercial districts had controls built in. of the 28 different neighborhood commercial districts we had, half of them the financial service use is either conditionally permitted or not permitted at all. we are looking at less than half the labor and commercial districts which otherwise have the misprints we permitted uses. -- have them as principally permitted uses. commissioner antonini: just to add onto what commissioner miguel said -- this is not the case for all banks and institutions, but we have seen instances where banks did have to much square footage on the project that was built recently and there was a very large bank of america that condensed operations and parking was put underground and allowed for the production of condominium units. a market, r
